Post any good April Fools' Day pranks/jokes you come across. To start off with, this is Google's joke:

BTW, this site keeps a massive list of April Fools' Day stuff every year.

This is super dumb, but I caught a Bulbasaur right away so I'm okay with it.

Most of the time April Fools jokes are terrible but from time to time a good one will get me. Still love that IGN Zelda movie trailer, I think they could pull it off.

My friends got engaged yesterday... should I chuck it off as an April Fools joke? What if one of them is not in on it? Terrifying and hilarious.

Maybe it's my old age, but I think most of them are a bit too obvious for me to find funny anymore. The best April Fools jokes are the ones that are actually plausible and are believable.

Maybe this would be a good time for Phil Fish to announce Fez 2 again.

I'd love some preposterous announcement like Half Life 3 or World of Warcraft 2 for consoles or something, and it actually being truthful.

I hate April Fools, I wont be a buzzkill dick wad about it, if you are into it, good for you, but it kind of misses the point of being 'pranked' or having a joke pulled or something, the best prank is the one you don't see coming, Aprils fools is just a day of "look at this joke you knew was going to happen!" It's so funny right?!"

FF14 announced theirs: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/pr/blog/000692.html

Today we'll be discussing the upcoming "Favour" system! This new system will allow adventurers to grow even closer to their favorite NPCs. Have you held out hope that one day Minfilia will look your way for longer than a cutscene? Or perhaps you offer gifts to Merlwyb to try and win her over? Well, that's what the Favour system is for!

But wait, it's still March 31st! (Not in Japan.)

Excited to see all the pranks, I love it.

Happy to hear all the miserable people that hate it. Glad I don't have that life! It's nice to enjoy things.

The only good April Fool's Day joke is a non-existent April Fool's Day joke. Professional companies and websites flat out lying one day of the year doesn't make me think very highly of them.

Most people just use the holiday to have fun and I'm okay with that. I doubt anyone took this as a serious job (I hope at least) but it's a fun thing to put a video out for and a neat update that let's people do things.

Tumblr has "tumblr pro" which just adds a top hat to your icon... I found it amusing.

I'm not a fan of April Fools day. But I always hope for an actual funny or realistic one. So far all I've found is headdit. Not that funny, but it's the first one I noticed this year.

Lets start more rumors that Nintendo games are coming to mobile with this Google Pokemon thing. I'd play the shit out of some Pokemon on my phone.

I kind of wish they had gone all in on this Pokémon thing and made more than just clicking stuff. If I had a day off and some friends I would love to go on an epic car trip to catch pretend Pokémon in various locations.

Also as far as Australia is concerned all the Pokémon seem to be in Sydney. Racists.

The finale for how i met your mother was certainly an early April Fool's joke because there's no way they could have messed it up that badly. Clearly, they're going to air the real finale tonight.........

Fucking Minecraft. They took the sound effects and replaced them with what sounds like Dave Lang drunk off his ass reading the names of the sound effects.

Best thing about netflix's joke is that at the end it says "if you liked this, you might like..." and then it links to a bunch of kevin bacon movies.

Wait... shouldn't this be a real thing? Transformers in Titanfall?

I mean... the money is right there in people's pockets, ready to disappear.
